Set in India around the 1830's, the story involves the conflict between orthodox and progressive Hindu religions. A young wife in a wealthy Indian household is deified by her father-in-law who has seen her in a dream as the goddess Durga (Kali). The city soon learns of her imposed divinity and she is set up as an idol for worship. She then begins to believe in her immortality, and the tension between her duty to the father-in-law's devotion and to her husband's pleas to leave the city soon drive her mad.
